Updating and Out of Date Cabinet using General finishes Milk Paint
I hope this week finds you well.
We are in for ANOTHER snow storm and honestly I think I am starting to go a bit nutty. 
We are already at snow day 10 or 11..(I have lost count) and they are thinking possibly 1 or 2 more this week.
I am hoping that for once they are wrong about the snow and ice (normally they are only wrong about NICE weather...am I right...or am I right? ) 
ANYWHOOO...I am sick of Gray and Dark and Gloomy so I decided I needed to paint something bright cheery and HAPPY.
You know, a little FAUX sunshine feeling.

Since I was going for that FAUX sunshine feeling I decided to paint this outdated little cabinet using some General Finishes
Milk Paint in Somerset Gold..(You know..what I think the sun might look like if we ever see it again here in Michigan) 
Since the top was in perfect condition I just cleaned that up.

I don't often paint things yellow, but I felt like this piece was the perfect size to add just a little bit of happy to a room.
Not too much..Not too little.

It went from drab and dreary to happy and cheery.
And who couldn't use a little happy and cheery right now!

I would be eternally grateful....:)
I hope you liked this happy and fun little makeover.
I am going to go back under my 400 blankets and cover my head and hope when I crawl out the storm will have passed 
and we will be headed towards spring!
Until then have a BEAUTIFUL day!

I love the yellow. If I had room for it, I would be making a bid on this.

This cabinet looks so good painted a happy yellow! I hear you about winter. It's been in the -30C (-22F) range here for two weeks and no sign of letting up anytime soon. Brrrrrrr I need me some happy yellow!

Lovely; it will be great for styling all year long--daffodils, sunflowers, fall leaves! The wooden top adds another layer of color to contrast whatever you put on the top.
